Posted in Spring Valley Obituaries

Lenora Hintze peacefully passed away on Saturday, March 14, 2015, at the Spring Valley Care Center in Spring Valley, Minn., 10 days short of celebrating her 101st birthday.

Lenora Hilda (Grabau) Hintze was born March 24, 1914, to Albert and Bertha (Winter) Grabau on the family farm in Forestville Township, Fillmore County, Minn.

She attended Forestville school and then continued her education at the parochial school at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Wykoff.

Lenora married Ruben Hintze on September 4, 1935, at St John’s Lutheran Church in Wykoff, and the couple later attended Dr. Martin Luther Church near Spring Valley. Later the family joined Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Spring Valley, and remained members of that congregation the rest of their lives.

The Hintzes farmed all their married life near Spring Valley, raising oats, wheat, corn, soybeans, alfalfa, apples, milk cows, pigs, geese, cats, and chickens. Ruben passed away August 1, 1986, and Lenora moved into Spring Valley, maintaining her own home until 2008. In 2008, Lenora moved to Spring Valley Estates and subsequently to the Spring Valley Care Center.

Lenora loved nature and being outdoors. She loved to fish, seek out wildflowers in the spring, feed songbirds in her yard, relocate squirrels, and maintain extensive flower and vegetable gardens. She loved animals, especially dogs, and always enjoyed raising chickens. She also loved sewing her own clothes and quilting, which she continued well into her 90s. Lenora liked to try new craft projects; bake new cookie, bar, and cake recipes; and she also collected rocks, pitchers, and chicken décor. She was a charter member of the Spring Valley Garden Club and attended Ladies Aid and Esther Circle at church. Lenora was always happy to share her garden bounty with others, be it with flower bouquets, apples, vegetables, or raspberries.

Lenora was a caregiver most of her life, first with her own grandmother in her parents’ home, and then with Ruben through his many years of rheumatoid arthritis. She also helped care for many relatives, friends and neighbors throughout her adult life. She would try to cheer them with flower bouquets, jokes and cartoons, as well as assisting with their various needs.

She is survived by her children: Ruth (Ray) Lemke of Spring Valley and Roger Hintze of Shoreview; granddaughters: Carolyn (Brian) Kanne of Medford and Ann .....
